With our full junk car removal service you can increase your cash and decrease your stress in just a few minutes. We give instant offers! I’d love to say we pick up cars instantly too, but our Teleportation Development Team (TDT) is still working on that and it’s highly classified.

When you want cash for your junk car in Wilkes-Barre, PA, you don’t want to waste your precious time trying to sell it online. We’ve streamlined our car buying process over many years. Here’s how our junk car removal process works:
The first step is to provide us details about your junk car. You will have to provide some basic information about what the kind of car it is (i.e. Chevy Malibu, Honda Civic, Oldsmobile Cutlass) as well as information about the condition of the car (i.e. Running, wrecked, status of the title). You can even upload photos of your car to get the most money possible. After you have submitted the necessary information, you will receive an instant cash offer on your junk car. Only thing left for you to do is accept and collect your cash!
Once you have accepted the offer, one of our Wilkes-Barre, PA junk car buyers will call you directly to schedule a pick up time. Just let us know where to pick it up and how to reach you to arrange for pickup.
We’ll tow it away for free! That’s right, you do not have to lug your junk car to some random location, our junk car buyers are going to come to you. They will inspect the vehicle and exchange payment, then they’ll tow that junk car away for free. Yes, free junk car removal in Wilkes-Barre, PA!
To ensure a smooth transaction, you should start to get some material together to sell your junk car in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Of course you’ll need the keys and the junk car. Those are the obvious ones. You’ll also want to gather any ownership paperwork you have. Make sure to let us know if you don’t actually have the title as that can change offer and what’s needed to sell the car. While we can never guarantee it, we can often pay cash for junk cars with no title in Wilkes-Barre.
When the Wilkes-Barre junk car buyer arrives at the pick up time, you’ll hand him the keys and the ownership documentation. After the sale, you’ll want to let the Pennsylvania Department of Motor Vehicles know that you have sold the junk car as well as see what steps are needed to cancel your registration. If there’s any insurance on the car now is the time to cancel that too. You certainly don’t want to keep paying insurance on a vehicle that you no longer own.
We get it, you’re a little skeptical of an online cash for cars program. We are not like the others. Some other salvage yards, or Wilkes-Barre, PA junk yards will tell you one price over the phone or online but then pay you less when they meet with you in person. Sometimes that in person meeting is after you’ve already paid to have your junk car towed to their location and are now stuck there. Not us! As long as your car matches the description you filled out on our online questionnaire, your offer is guaranteed. We’ve also got that free junk car removal. There’s no out of pocket expense to you for using our cash for cars service. We take care of it all.
You may be considering a private sale through eBay, Craigslist, or print ads. This process might yield you a couple more dollars, but at what cost? You’re going to need to create the ad, possibly pay for the ad, and then sit back and wait.. and wait.. and wait. There just aren’t that many individual people who buy junk cars in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Finally someone will call or email you about your vehicle and set up a time to see the car, maybe test drive it. Does your insurance cover them during a test drive? Are you sure they want the junk car, and not to scam you? How do you know they’ll actually transfer the ownership out of your name after the sale?

"The Crown Victoria runs. It just has some engine problems and its honestly like a $350 fix for you to take care of after you buy the car (cylinder 1 misfires). It may also be the heads. No radio and it needs light upholstery work. Outside of that, its a decent car. I got a new one and didn't want to continue putting money in this one."
"The truck runs but it needs a new smog pump. It also leaks oil from the back seal. Once you fix these things it would run well. The back bumper has a small dent."
"The Trans Sport drives, but overheats. When you press on the gas the engine thermometer goes down to normal, but when you coast or sit at a light for a while it heats back up. The driver's side mirror came off and we had to screw it back on. "
"The vehicle needs a new engine. I got a newer vehicle so I no longer need this one. Everything works on it, it just needs a new engine. And its been sitting in one spot so the tires are going flat. The tires would need to be pumped up or new tires would have to be put on the car."
"My Venture does not run, due to a possible transmission problem. When it was running, the oil light came on. It said low oil pressure so I added oil and ended up over filling. I don't want to put any more money into it. My son was driving it and now the passenger door trim is stripped off. "
"While driving my Grand Am through Long Beach all the lights came on & it started acting funny so I pulled over n shut it off. Now it won't stay started. It starts with a jump. It has either an electrical shortage or a bad alternator. "
